A book I love and hate at the same time is That Was Then This Is Now by S.E Hinton. It is the unofficial sequel to her classic book The Outsiders. Its about 2 boys Bryon an Mark, When Mark's parents die his best friends family takes him in. The 2 boys are obsessed with gangs like the ones from The Outsiders. But shortly after Dally and Johnny's deaths gangs are disband in Tulsa. So the boys create their own groups. It's a story of 2 best friends growing up and growing apart.
